BookCentric: I suggest "A Morbid Taste for Bones," the first Brother Cadfael medieval mystery. If you already like Dame Frevisse, I think you'll really like Brother Cadfael. "Satan in St. Mary's" by PC Doherty might also be good! (Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:15:57 -0500)
BookCentric: Also, since they like PG Wodehouse, "Leave it to Psmith." Sometimes overlooked because it is not one of the Jeeves series, it is one of his best! (Wed, 07 Dec 2016 14:18:59 -0500)
Momonaco: Jacqueline Winspear, the Maisie Dobbs series set in the 1920s/1930s, UK and Europe (Wed, 07 Dec 2016 17:29:30 -0500)
Peace2: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley (Thu, 08 Dec 2016 22:55:42 -0500)
